Faithfully Religionless Book Excerpt:

Discover the difference between feelings and emotions, the disparity between truths and facts, and the countless benefits of mindful living. When his pursuit of happiness in Corporate America feels counterproductive, Timber Hawkeye escapes the flourescent-lit hell of his cubicle in Seattle and sets out to fully embrace the stress-free lifestyle of Hawaii. Intrigued and curious about what people believe (and why they believe what they do), he questions everything he ever thought was true and discovers the beauty of letting go. If you consider yourself spiritual but not religious, then you're going to love this inspirational book. And if you want to lead a simple and uncomplicated life with happiness at your fingertips, then you'll want to read this page-turner more than once! "It's not that I'm against religion, I simply don't have one (nor do I believe that we need it to be ethical). My faith is doctrine-free, with a definition of God that doesn't conjure a white man in the sky who dispenses blessings for good behavior and harsh judgments to condemn the bad. That's because I don't believe God does that; religion does. You see, faith is a spiritual practice of continually letting go of certainty, of ego, and of the underlying need to know, while religion is a ceremonial tradition of hanging on, clinging to concrete dogmas, stubborn rigidity, and ageless rituals."

The Opposite of Namaste Book Excerpt:

Mindfulness doesn't make other people less irritating, it makes us less irritable. I understand why you do what you do, because the ego in me sees the ego in you. Each chapter in this book is an episode from the Buddhist Boot Camp Podcast, offering food for thought about the non-judgmental benefits of recognizing and acknowledging both the ego and the divinity within us all. It's not about living in a bubble where nobody pushes your buttons, it's about getting to a point where you don't have any buttons that can be pushed.

Reclaim Your Right To Grow Old Book Excerpt:

Thank heaven youth and middle age are behind you. Now you can concentrate on yourself. And celebrate, indulge in and be enthralled by the most significant experience you will have as a human being: the process of growing old. Our culture says the best way to deal with aging is to fight it. Look young, act young, feel young, they tell you, for as long as you can. But when it comes to crafting a blueprint for successful aging, society seems to be lagging behind modern science and way behind the philosophies of our ancestors. Leading-edge gerontologists are now discovering wisdom revealed centuries ago: that old age may be the most important stage in the human life cycle. To miss out on it by chasing after your younger self means forgoing some of life’s most meaningful moments. In Reclaim Your Right to Grow Old, Kathleen O’Brien takes you on her journey into ancient philosophy, ground-breaking science and our culture’s misconceptions about aging. Her advice? Tell people your age, expect young people to respect you, be eccentric, never age gracefully. Kathleen reminds you that empowerment, peace and self-knowledge unfold effortlessly when you age the way nature intended. Your later years are like no other. You are meant to experience them so you can uncover the reasons we grow old in the first place. Don’t let this remarkable time pass you by. Old age only comes around once.

Religionless Religion Book Excerpt:

In these perilous times when the very survival of the human species is at stake, there is a desperate need for wisdom to provide guidance. The sacred literature of the world's major religious traditions is a source for such wisdom, but it has largely been misinterpreted and misunderstood, and, thus, instead of being a source for wisdom, it has been a source for confusion and conflict. The ancient scriptures, for the most part, were written in a language which is quite different from ordinary language. It is a mythological language, which is symbolic, and therefore its meaning is hidden. In the Bible, for example, there are many narratives that appear to be historical, but they are history that has been mythologized, and therefore their surface meaning is not their real meaning. Clyde Edward Brown clearly illustrates that the correct interpretation of the world's religious texts would lead to a different concept of religion. Instead of belief in the literal truth of texts that have been misinterpreted, the emphasis would be on having those religious values, such as social and economic justice, which are common to all religions.

Discipleship in a World Full of Nazis Book Excerpt:

"Things do exist that are worth standing up for without compromise. To me it seems that peace and social justice are such things, as is Christ himself." These are words Dietrich Bonhoeffer spoke to his brother a few months before he began training future pastors in the ways of discipleship. For several years he had been speaking out against war. Near the beginning of the anti-Semitic Nazi regime, he called on his fellow Christians to speak out against a state that was engaging in oppressive measures, to respond to victims of oppression, and to be willing to suffer, as a church, if it was required to stop such oppression. His vision for training disciples was rooted in pure doctrine, serious worship, a new kind of monasticism, and the Sermon on the Mount. Bonhoeffer was convinced that through the living presence of Jesus and the explosive teachings of the Sermon on the Mount "lies the force that can blow all this hocus-pocus sky-high--like fireworks, leaving only a few burnt-out shells behind." This is the legacy of this extraordinary theologian that this book seeks to recover--exploring how this was lived out in a world full of Nazis.

Catholic Christian Spirituality for NEW AGE DUMMIES Book Excerpt:

This book is about Catholic spirituality, which the author christens it as ‘Catholic Christian Spirituality’, which introduces this spirituality to those who dream about knowing it clearly and observing it validly and fruitfully but not fully realized their dream yet. It is a compilation of the Catholic Christian Spirituality’s Scriptural foundations, its historical explications of the Church, its multi-dimensional applications, and its inner and outer dynamics. Definitely the sole difference of this book from others, as the author writes, is the fact that “it is a book written with my red and warm blood as a personal journal of my experiential spirituality as a cradle New Age Catholic.” Though this post-modern age is judged as one of the most secular ones, even as many comment it is an age of irreligiosity there are actually millions of people around the globe being hungry for spirituality and earnestly looking for help with their inner lives. Too many self-declared sages propose too many strategies as they like. Fr. Vima observes in those dealings many are too extreme or too sentimental or too conservative and liberal or too wordy and theoretical. With a heart of pastor, serving in many parishes in the States, he offers this book to the Catholic Christian friends who live, move in this turbulent period. This book is supposed to join in that group of works. In no way it seeks to be exhaustive or conclusive handbook or textbook on Catholic Christian spirituality or any sort of spiri¬tual guidance. It consists of discussions on the basic elements of Catholic Christian spirituality, its various types, its motives and especially its dynamics. The author underlines this book’s uniqueness as he writes: “In human communication it is said, ‘one visual is worth thousand words’.

Teachable Moments Book Excerpt:

Teachable Moments is a personal reflection on the world’s most familiar prayer taken from the lips of Jesus Himself, repeated in every language on a weekly basis in churches throughout the world. Written in a readable and thought-provoking style, Teachable Moments will prompt new thoughts about Jesus’s radical theology of God as Abba Father. When Jesus taught his disciples this brief prayer, he had an agenda much larger than just the words we pray. He was addressing our understanding of God and the nature of our relationship with God. He was teaching about the nature of citizenship in God’s Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. Kingdom citizens practice forgiveness breaking the unhealthy cycle of revenge and retaliation. Jesus warned about temptation and the nature of pervasive evil in the world. Jesus’s goal was to correct all the wrong-headed misconceptions the world has accumulated about the one true God who He understood as Abba Father. Finally, this provocative book asks the all-important question: What kind of Jesus says and teaches things like these? Who is the Jesus we are following?

Secular Monasticism Book Excerpt:

Like an underground river, the monastic tradition keeps on resurging in a host of unexpected times and places. Secular Monasticism, A Journey describes one of its most recent incarnations. The founders and members of the Lindisfarne Community share with us their bold attempt to be a secular monastic religious order open to the exigencies of the contemporary world. Age-old wisdom once again reveals its perennial relevance in helping us learn how to be followers of Christ in God's today. Brother John, Taizé In the first five pages, I thought of ten people I know who should read this book: young people, old people, all people tired of taken-for-granted spirituality. Devour this book. Let it help you dream up a way of joining or creating a micro-community of prayer and action that frees you to experiment in following the ways of Christ. That´s what these folks have done. This story helps us imagine ourselves out of the boxes and buildings Christianity has become. The Rev. Dr. Dori Baker, Scholar-in-Residence, The Fund for Theological Education Lindisfarne Community has graciously accepted God's call to dance with the radical (and sometimes wearying) changes of our time. Like the Celts, they find meaning in their ongoing spiritual evolution through poetry and story, through a willingness to navigate the waters of the soul while remaining fiercely loyal to the good earth that bore us and nurtures us. Like the Celts, this family of secular monastics hungers more for mystical union with the Divine Mystery than for any trappings of earthly renown or success.

How to Be Evangelical without Being Conservative Book Excerpt:

Many people equate evangelical Christianity with conservatism in religion, politics, theology and social attitudes. Some are scandalized by any separation between them. As one evangelical pastor's wife declared to a church group "We are a conservative people!"In fact, however, evangelicals have not always been conservative; radical stances on doctrines, worship, social norms, politics and church leadership have often marked evangelicalism in the past. The 2007 movie Amazing Grace about William Wilberforce's protracted battle against the slave trade featured a small group of British evangelicals committed to abolition. The same radicalism characterized much of American evangelicalism in the years before the Civil War.In recent years the American media have portrayed the evangelical movement as a conservative force in society sometimes equating it with fundamentalism and puritanism. The missing piece of the story is, however, that both fundamentalism and puritanism contained radical elements that opposed the status quo.This book sets forth evidence that the link between evangelicalism and conservatism has not always been as strong as it is today in the popular mind and it will provide suggestions for contemporary evangelicals who want to remain evangelical (and not become "post-evangelical") without identifying with conservatism in every way.
